What is Swanson Ultra Folic Acid & Vitamin B12

There are many different types of vitamin B of which folic acid is actually one. Both folic acid and Vitamin B12 are forms of water soluble vitamin B which means that they are constantly effective and, in the case of B12 it can actually live in your body's liver cells for a long time. Which is great news when you consider its role alongside folic acid in turning your food into energy.

Folic acid is considered so crucial, in fact, that according to federal law in the United States it is required to be deliberately added to certain food products, just to ensure that the population are receiving enough of it.

How much is enough though? Official guidelines state that the human body requires 400mg per day. In the case of the pregnant or breastfeeding, that RDI increases to 500-600mg per day. Fortunately for us, Swanson Ultra Folic Acid & Vitamin B12 contains around 1000mg - meaning that you will never go wanting.

What is Swanson Ultra Folic Acid & Vitamin B12 used for?

Aside from helping to metabolise our food into energy, Folic acid has a number of other essential uses.

  • Makes & maintains cells
  • Makes and maintains DNA, RNA, amino acids and red blood cells, which is one of the reasons folic acid is considered by so many to be a crucial supplement for pregnant or breastfeeding women

When our bodies begin to feel the strain of a vitamin B deficiency the signs are telling. Our systems can fail to metabolise our food for a number of reasons but the outcome is never good.

  • Tiredness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Lack of energy
  • Sore tongue
  • Pins & needles
  • Depression

You may know anaemia as an iron deficiency but actually it comes in several different guises, some of which are more closely related to vitamin B deficiency. Pernicious Anaemia for example, is where the body attacks healthy cells in your gut, preventing your body from absorbing enough vitamin B.

Increasingly there are medications and environmental factors that may affect your vitamin B supply too. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and anticonvulsants can both affect your ability to absorb this crucial vitamin.

Swanson Ultra Folic Acid & Vitamin B12 will keep your body in stock for a long time, meaning that you don't have to worry about getting the most from your food, your body will do it for you.
